The Legal Business Awards 2018

The 21st annual Legal Business Awards featured more than 900 guests in a gala ceremony on 18 April, hosted by a very popular choice – respected broadcaster, journalist and writer Mariella Frostrup.

Before the Awards, in-house guests gathered for the launch of our sixth annual GC Powerlist, The Team Elite, which looked at the outstanding in-house legal teams for the second time. In attendance were key representatives from FTSE 100 companies such as the Financial Times, Legal & General and Shire.

Then it was time to move to the Great Room at Grosvenor House for this year’s Legal Business Awards. Fieldfisher was crowned Law Firm of the Year after an impressive 36% revenue growth to £165m in 2016/17 – the largest rise of any law firm in the Legal Business 100 table. It was a big night for Kirkland & Ellis too.

The world’s highest-grossing firm secured two of the most sought-after awards, Private Equity Team of the Year and US Law Firm of the Year. Stephenson Harwood also picked up two awards on the night – Private Client Team of the Year, and another of the most coveted awards – Corporate Team of the Year – for its role advising Lavendon Group in its takeover by Loxam.
